Welcome!


This site is our attempt to provide for you a quick and comprehensive account of the resources available to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) students, staff and allies. We hope that this site will answer your questions and offer you insight to our university and its commitment to all of our students.

We would like to ask you for your help. Occasionally we hear second or third hand about alleged hate crimes and discriminatory behavior being perpetrated against our LGBTQ students, but we do not receive official reports. If you are ever a victim or firsthand witness to a crime of this nature please complete a confidential Bias Incident Report form or contact Alyssa Oltmanns, Gender and Sexuality Outreach Services Coordinator  at 715-346-2596.

At UW-Stevens Point we are committed to your success and your safety. These are not just empty promises. Enjoy tooling around on this site and please give us your feedback of things you would like to see.
